Hi, just found your site. Very impressive.
I served with the Blues and Royals in the 70's and drove a AFV432 Swingfire. I am so sad that you have discontinued this model. I would have loved to be able to get this. Will I ever be able to purchase this again? This is the only site I found doing this. I will be so sad, if after all this time and effort trying to find it. Only to find it has been taken away again.
